Anyone use this browser?

Came across mention of it in YT comments about something that would allow for separate song downloads for whole albums.

My AV says the download has at least one PUP program and one piece of malware.

It appears one of these "ad supporting" softwares. Judging from what google tells about it, I would stay away.

Hope it didn't infect anyone, seems like a bad idea.

Saw it promoted on some tech site, should have known better.
